Many thanks to Tegan for this sample! what a day! Running around doing errands and irritating my fibromyalgia (back and core hurt) but I was able to go 7 hours on my feet in a marathon of gettin stuff done…so I could come home and flop an (yes an) have some tea. (tomorrow I’m going to pay for what I did to my body today arrrrr). Anyhoose (did your grandma or grandpa say anyhoose?) I had this tea from Tegan that is low caffeine from Teavana and thought what the hay…some white tea, coconut, apples and kiwi, papaya, lemongrass and lemon peel and pineapple. Sounds good. I was really into wanting a good cuppa. I steeped 6 minutes and did a test sip…nah…watery…went longer and poured. Very watery still. I had put in enough tea. But, I added some more and kept brewing. Still not very flavorful. I added sweetening. Not good. Added more, and more. Still really no coconut, no flavor standing out and saying “Hello there, I’m Pineapple” or “Papaya” or even “Lemon”. If it was more acidic and stronger it would have been a cleaner. Sorry folks but it was dull and uh…dull. Think I’ll try something else. I’ve not had much luck with Teavana for some reason.

My Mum has fibro as well. Terrible thing it is! I’m so sorry Bonnie :(
but hey, I’ve read that one of the symptoms is often a heightened sense of taste and smell…

I just read an article about the possibility of organic coconut oil helping with fibro. It may be bunk, but I thought I would mention it in case it works.

Colorado Grandma

Grandmother to 3 teenaged girls and 5 young boys. (we all drink tea!) I began teatime in the Summer over 30 years ago when my children were little. We took a break from play for tea and snacks every day. My children loved tea time.
There are several tea houses close to my home and a Tea Festival in Boulder. Fort Collins is a bit of a foodie town. We brew lots of Beer (Fat Tire is one brand) and have several Spice Shops (Savory was one featured on Food Network).
Colorado State University is a mile from my home and the Rocky Mountains begin to climb at the end of my street. The climate is semi-arid with LOTS OF SUN AT 5000 feet. (Heavy Winter snows start in higher elevations). Living my whole life in Northern California (Silicon Valley) I have to admit that I LOVE IT HERE!!!
I attend a wonderful Greek Orthodox Church and enjoy cooking ethnic foods (all kinds). I am disabled with Migraines and Fibromyalgia.
My family is Bi-racial (African-American, Scots) and Bi-cultural, (Peru, Cyprus, France, Mexico, Native American)
